Using three ingredients I can whip out an appetizer that presents well and tastes scrumptious. If you prefer something other than shrimp, I've listed several other choices to use to top the cream cheese.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Drain the can of shrimp. Place the block of cream cheese in the center of an appropriate serving plate. Pour the cocktail sauce over the cream cheese. Top with the shrimp.

If you prefer, you may use chutney, picante sauce, taco sauce, caviar, or bacon and green onion instead of the shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 2 packages Cream Cheese (room temp)
  • 1 package Dry Ranch Dip Mix (you can find this in the Salad Dressing Section of your store)
  • Ad

  • 1 cup of finely shredded Sharp Cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans (if you don't like nuts, you can omit)

Directions

Cream the cream cheese, add ranch dip mix and shredded cheese. Make sure the dip mix is mixed very good into the cream cheese. Form into a ball and roll in chopped nuts. Serve with a butter cracker. Mmmmm good!

My favorite is 1 small jar pimentos drained,(save juice)
1 package cream cheese
Using food processor mince pimentos add cream cheese pulse until blended, if too dry add a few drops of pimento juice. Careful or it will be runny

I've also used shredded cheddar cheese, or a small can drained crushed pineapple.

Mix some pesto sauce into the softened cream cheese. I like to add sundried tomatoes, too. This is tasty with bread or pita chips.

There are a lot more ideas on the Kraft web site...

1 package cream cheese or cream cheese light
1/4 cup Miracle Whip or Micale Whip Light
1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1.2 tsp. garlic salt (optional)

Mix cream cheese and Miracle whip until fluffy.

Empty spinach into a strainer and press it with a paper towl to remove as much moisture as possible.

Fold drained spinach and garlic salt into cheese mixture.

Great on pita chips or wheat crackers.

There was a neat tip here a few weeks ago about adding brown sugar to cream cheese, and using it as a dip for apples. It tastes like caramel or taffy apples.
